A few weeks ago I (Dave) got the opportunity to try something new by shooting a documentary family session. It’s something I’ve thought about doing for a while, as I’ve always been inspired by the wonderfully talented and super-nice Kirsten Lewis and her Day In The Life Sessions. So I threw some feelers out on Facebook and my friend Stefan Makwana (another amazing photographer from Calgary) jumped at the chance.
I’d never done anything like this, we don’t have kids, nor do I spend a lot of time around small humans, but I thought it would be awesome to try something new. And as it turns out, I really enjoyed it! I spent four hours with the Makwana family from breakfast until just after lunch and this is what I saw.
